DCFC & L2 Charging Safe in Heavy Rain?
Is it safe to both plug in and let the ID4 charge in the rain, and by rain, I mean tropical storm can't see type rain, not a drizzle. Checking because we often have insane but usually brief rain storms here and a Lv 1 charger will take forever. Also I may be using a RV all weather extension...
So I took a 500 mile road trip yesterday in my GTI in pretty hard rain. No big deal with an ICE. But I will be making that same trip routinely after I get my AWD Pro S. The public chargers that I’ll be using are all uncovered (as practically all are everywhere), and I was wondering whether it’s OK to hook up a charger under torrential rain? Not a hurricane, but hard rain or even thunderstorms. That could really put a damper 😏 on a road trip.
What are your thoughts? TIA
